A dump is fine and gives more or less the same size as the dump which was restored to the USB key: # dump -0au -f reRead.dmp /dev/da0s1a DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Sun Nov 21 08:05:25 2010 DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch DUMP: Dumping /dev/da0s1a to reRead.dmp DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files] DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories] DUMP: estimated 3282758 tape blocks. DUMP: dumping (Pass III) [directories] DUMP: dumping (Pass IV) [regular files] DUMP: 56.62% done, finished in 0:03 at Sun Nov 21 08:14:18 2010 DUMP: DUMP: 3287561 tape blocks on 1 volume DUMP: finished in 586 seconds, throughput 5610 KBytes/sec DUMP: level 0 dump on Sun Nov 21 08:05:25 2010 DUMP: Closing reRead.dmp DUMP: DUMP IS DONE current# ls -l reRead.dmp ~guru/usb9root.dmp -r--r--r-- 1 guru wheel 3351920640 12 nov 13:40 /home/guru/usb9root.dmp -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 3366461440 21 nov 08:15 reRead.dmp One could as well MD5 compare all files with find(1), but this is perhaps a bit overkill... I will buy a 2nd key and restore the dd(1)'ed file to it with dd(1)... matthias -- Matthias Apitz t +49-89-61308 351 - f +49-89-61308 399 - m +49-170-4527211 e <g...@unixarea.de> - w http://www.unixarea.de/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-usb To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-usb-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
